The Dark Tower
THE last gunslinger is locked in an eternal battle with the Man in Black, determined to prevent him from toppling the tower which holds the universe together.

TWO sisters holidaying in Mexico are trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of air left and great white sharks circling nearby, they must fight to survive.
